Due to the current crisis, Daryl obviously didn't have many human subjects to photograph. And who knew squirrels would make perfect substitutes!

Granger told CBC:

"We spend a lot of time in the backyard, and we noticed, 'gosh, there's a lot of squirrels,' so we thought, 'why not set up a photoshoot.'"

The Pair Built Two Outdoors Sets to Attract Squirrels to Their Backyard

Granger explained:

"The first one, we named it Nutzy's Country Market, and we built all the wooden food bins and everything."

"The last one is a peanut butter factory, and I am working on one, a nut vault — so it will show the squirrels looking like they are trying to get into a bank vault filled with nuts."

Nutzy's Country Market features an assortment of nuts, including almonds, peanuts and walnuts.

While the peanut butter factory is filled with—of course—peanut butter.

Granger said:

"All these squirrels have personalities. You just see them interacting on a set, and it's like they're hungry for nuts. They climb all over things."

"Since we put the nuts there, I'd swear they told their buddies to come, I'd say the total we have is about 10. You see them coming from all different directions. We feed them nuts, so of course, they're going to come."
